(c) 1989 Tony Beard Music (ASCAP)


Looking around it's plain to see
So many people trying to be
Just what they want and who's to say.
They'll never get there someday.
Walk in a straight line.
Walking in a straight line.
Hard times, walking in a straight line.

Always wanting to find your way
True to yourself you've got to stay
Trying so hard, it's not easy I know
Never give up but if you have got to go.
Walk in a straight line.
Walking in a straight line.
Hard times, walking in a straight line.

One day at a time is in your mind.
You know that it can come true.
So reach for your dreams and as crazy as it seems
Believing is all you can do, oh!

Who's to say if I'm right or wrong.
I know that I've just got to be strong.
Maybe I'll never see that day.
Still I'll fight for it anyway.
Walk in a straight line.
Walking in a straight line.
Hard times, walking in a straight line.
